September is Ecommerce Tips Month

Labor Day is the sound of the starter’s gun. Back-To-School marks the beginning of a new holiday selling season online. Ecommerce websites behave differently during the fall. As we draw closer to the world’s most popular deadline, 12.25, conversion rates go up, visits before purchase go down, and Average Order Values (AOV) increase. This holiday selling season is going to be different because:

Mobile Marketing

Mobile will be important, even if your customers aren’t buying from your site using their phones and iPads yet. Your customers are curating your emails and other communication with mobile devices. This year will be the first truly mobile holiday selling season.

Social Media Marketing

Social marketing is exerting a greater and greater influence on SEO and purchase intent. Combine mobile and social, sometimes called SoLoMo (Social, Local and Mobile), and you have the makings for a very different holiday selling season.

Questions & Answers

Are there differences in application architecture that are important for the cloud?
It is important to build applications and workloads specifically for the cloud. You will want to carefully consider what services the cloud provider of your choice has to offer and how your application leverages those services.
Learn More
Are there any drawbacks to cloud hosting?
Yes, there will always be some risks associated with any hosting option. You are relying on the resiliency and engineering of infrastructure that has scaled at an astounding rate.
Learn More
What’s the benefit of hosting in the cloud vs. traditional options?
Reasons not to host in the cloud are few and far between. If you don't host in the cloud, you will spend more in both CapEx and OpEx to manage your applications or websites in a traditional environment.
Learn More
How can I improve the performance of my application?
There are several primary reasons that applications perform poorly, and in some cases it’s a combination of several. 1) Data latency: If your application is making calls to a data source (whether it’s an API or a direct call) and there is latency at the data provider, your application performance will suffer.
Learn More
Should I move my application to the cloud?
The answer is ‘probably yes’. There aren’t many reasons for an application to be hosted elsewhere, aside from occasional compliance standards, or requirements to integrate with local services that would require large amounts of data to move from on-premise to cloud.
Learn More
Where should my application be hosted?
There are many different options for hosting, but most applications would do well with one of the cloud providers -- Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform, Microsoft Azure.
